Ray Graham working out for Steelers

Justin K. Aller

Not likely in contention for a spot on the Steelers' active roster, the team may be interested in a pratice squad role followed by a future's contract.

Post Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette Tweeted Tuesday the Steelers are hosting former Pitt running back Ray Graham for a workout.

Graham went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft after a productive career at Pitt. He signed with the Houston Texans in May, and was added to their practice squad.

He was released Nov. 15 when the Texans signed linebacker Ricky Sapp.

Graham hasn't played in an NFL game, but had a productive collegiate career. He tore his ACL midway through the Panthers' 2011 season, but rebounded with a decent 2012 campaign.

Clearly, any interest in Graham would be for a practice squad spot. The active roster would appear to be full, especially at running back. Rookie Le'Veon Bell has averaged over 20 touches a game since returning in Week 4 from injury.

Graham is a player with whom the Steelers are obviously familiar with his time in Pittsburgh. Stashing him on their practice squad and signing him after the season to a future's deal might not be a bad idea.
